Meet our Hometown Hero from May!

Our Hometown Hero for May is Brett Miller, founder and owner of 110 Fitness in Rockland, MA.  110 Fitness is an all-inclusive wellness center as well as the largest wellness center in the world for individuals with Parkinson’s Disease.

110 Fitness is the first of its kind inclusive wellness center for individuals afflicted with disease and/or a developmental or physical disability. The mission of 110 Fitness is to leave no person behind so that they may reach their full potential physically, mentally, and spiritually by inspiring them to give their 110% effort in order to find the greatest balance in their lives. By combining physical exercise with ancillary mindful and wellness programs our members are provided with all the supports necessary to “Be 110”.

Brett is a U.S. Army veteran and proud to have served as a combat medic trainer for special operations and oversaw the construction and development of the DEPMEDS for the United States Army.  He recently published “It’s a Beautiful Day To Save Lives: A Medic’s Journey to his Destiny”, a powerful memoir about his journey through life as he recognizes his destiny from very early in his young childhood to save lives, an ending in ultimately needing to save his own life.

Meet our first Hometown Hero!

Twenty years ago, Kevin McKenna of Hanson took his daughter to her first elementary school dance.  Unfortunately, Kevin witnessed first-hand how his special needs daughter was treated by both students and parents who shunned her.  After that day, Kevin vowed to create an event where any special need child or adult felt welcome and included.

Many years later, Prom Angels conducts an annual prom event, allowing everyone the chance to make special prom memories. 

Congratulations to Kevin McKenna, our first Hometown Hero for his contributions to our community!  If you know someone doing great things in our area, fill out the form below to tell us about them and nominate them as a Hometown Hero !
